One Day At A Time


”‘Come to the edge’,”he said. They said, ‘We are afraid.”Come to the edge,’ he said. They came. He pushed them … and they flew.”

-Guillaume Apollinaire

Whenever things look bleak I remember how dark and dismal my life was before my Higher Power led me to this Twelve Step program. Before program I was afraid to reach for recovery. I was afraid to try to be an over-comer and I was afraid to come to the edge. But slowly I inched my way over to that edge and my Higher Power gave me a gentle nudge. I was flying! I wasn’t chained by my disease anymore. I wasn’t trapped in the darkness. I’d come into the light. That day I received a gift from my Higher Power … I received a taste of recovery.

One day at a time …

I come to the edge and trust my Higher Power to give me wings to fly.
